Exceptional coverage and finish
About Me Natural Style
Comments about RESIST Flawless Finish Pressed Powder - Porcelain/Fair:
I forgot to pack foundation (yes-foundation) for my vacation. Because it was a bit pricey, I don't want to re-purchase it. I've worn this powder as a finishing step to my foundation but discovered that using just corrector & concealer, I can finish with this powder and wow ...my face looks fabulous. In fact, I'm not sure I need foundation in the summer at all. My foundation is very moisturizing for the cooler climate but Paula's powder is exceptional, long wearing & the coverage is even & natural looking.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Please bring old formula back!
from Nanuet, ny
About Me Classic Style
Please bring back the old formula!!!!! Best I've ever found and can't live without! My sister and I never have found a better formulated powder and this one doesn't come close. It didn't cause breakouts, had soft smooth coverage and the spf was a bonus! I have tried 5 other powders since it was discontinued and still can't find one that comes close to the old version. I still love the pc products but just am disappointed in this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Where is my healthy finish pressed powder?????
from Raleigh, nc
I have the resist pressed powder as well as 2 healthy finish pressed powders ( 1 for home and 1 for my purse). I have always used Cliniques neutral pressed powder and then I tried PC healthy finish. And now it's gone????? Not a big fan of the resist powder. Sadly.... Going back to Clinique. I'm getting low on my purse compact and really wanted another.

Bring Back Healthy Finish Pressed Powder Now
By once happy client
Ive been using strictly PC products for skincare and makeup for years. The best face forward foundation along with the HEALTHY FINISH PRESSED POWDER was PERFECT. Very shocked and angry to see it gone. Only makeup that did not make my acne-prone skin worse. This new powder is horrible, does not look natural at all and looks more orangey than anything, even the light shades. I either a ghost or an orange. Please bring back healthy finished pressed powder in all colors. This is why I have trust issues.. my skin has been breaking out so much more since using this foundation, even CLEAR isn't helping like it used to. I used to rave about all things PC but am baffled and upset at the lack of results and options. Bring the other powder back! -a once happy customer

What Happened to the Plethora of Shades?!??
from Boise, ID
When I first switched to this from the old pressed powder I was skeptical, but the reviews at the time backed it up so I gave it a shot.This powder coupled with the Shine Stopper are the perfect flawless combination in makeup I've ever experienced! Both feel like cashmere on my skin and stay matte with an ever so slight touch of soft dew even after hours of wear.So upon coming back to reorder for my Light/Medium shade, I was floored to see the current choices. I don't know if stock is just low or out, but I will be incredibly disappointed if the original offering of colors isn't returned... I haven't been on the site in quite awhile, but it was the reason I returned and sadly customer satisfaction did not prevail on selection.I would've loved to recommend this to a friend, but not until color stock in replenished.Please bring back your wonderful product in the colors you initially offered.

Missed the old prtessed powder!
from Toronto, Canada
I used to buy pressed powder with SPF and loved it, especially in the summer. The new one in fair doesn't even compare to the old one, Looks too yellow on my skin. Had to return it. Missed the old one in natural shade.

What happened to Healthy Finished Pressed Powder?
from McKinney, TX
Have used Healthy Finished Press Powder in Buff Beige since its inception and have been a Paula devotee since 1997, before she created and sold her own products. I carried her book Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me to the cosmetic counter when I went shopping for both skin care and makeup. I was stunned when I went to purchase more Healthy Finished Pressed Powder and discovered it was no longer available. Not only does this Resist Powder have a poor color choice of only two, but where is the SPF that has always been the foundation of Paula's philosophy for keeping skin healthy?! Neither color works for me and the powder is super drying and does show fine lines and wrinkles.
Bring back neutral shade and SPF!!
from Pasadena MD
Great Powder! Goes on feeling very smooth and has great coverage, however, Porcelain/Fair is TOO light and Medium/Tan is TOO dark! Please bring back the neutral shade and SPF, then it would be perfect!
I Finally Found the Perfect Powder!
from Rochester, NY
I have VERY fair skin; the porcelain/fair is the perfect shade. I do not need to use any other foundation with this powder-that's how well it evens out your skin tone and covers imperfections. It's light, but lasts all day. It's also a breeze to use thanks to the brush that comes with (in a separate hygenic compartment). PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE OR CHANGE THIS!
